Aspects of Interactive Graphic Systems

  • Richard J. Dowe

Abstract

During the last decade, were you a clock watcher? Leonard da Vinci wrote “A clock (is) to be used by those who grudge the wasting of time.” 1 Those of us who were involved in the advancement of computer graphics during the last decade might ponder that question. How many of us were clock watchers? Was there a wasting of time?
